I am able to report that the legal costs to date regarding the investigation into former General Manager Mr Alan Eldridge since February this year have been $20,395.00.

In addition another $15,442.64 has been paid to a private investigator employed to investigate allegations made against the former General Manager.

It should be noted this is not a final figure as further invoices are expected.

Once these final invoices are received they too will be made available.
